I have quit smoking, am a recovering alcoholic, and have bipolar 1. Having diabetes is by far the most difficult of the bunch.

It has come down to 351 from 450 earlier,so that's good.At 351 I ate tuna,lettuce,a tiny bit of hommous with olive oil and tomato,after which I took two metformin and two glicazide,extra to normal doses.This was at 8pm,I will measure again at 10pm.Before bed I will eat some apple and peanut butter as recommended.

Marylin thank you. I hope you can see your doctors soon, and that they will be helpful to you.

Welcome to new posters, and i hope everyone is feeling well and can have a good weekend!

I know it's only been a few days since you posted this Gr3tta but I hope that your wife's recovery has become a little more settled by now. It is positive that her blood sugars are good too.

Thanks for asking about the meds.My new meds have turned me unto one very cranky Possum but I am having more nights being able to sleep in my bed.


Pleased to hear that the nurse can change your medications Marilyn. Seems like you are doing some hard but much needed work to bring your blood sugars down. Keep up the good work.

Thank you Possum.It is 12.30 am here so Happy New Year 2019 to you all.I wish us all health and happiness for 2019!

I am sorry your new meds are making you feel cranky,but at least you are sleeping better,it is a shame it has to be a trade off like that!

My blood sugar is improving ,it is now down from 351 to 264,definitely going in the right direction,so that is good.I am going to pay careful attention to what I eat and bring it down as much as I can before I see the nurse on Monday 7th January.

I am going to eat apple and peanut butter before I go to bed to stop the liver dumping extra glucose into my bloodstream,I only found out that it does that online googling tonight and that the apple and peanut butter prevents that!So I now have to properly educate myself about my diabetes and learn how to take care of it.

I have had 4 hours sleep,it is 4.30am.I woke craving sugar.I measured and my blood sugar is 277 so just a little bit up from the 264 before bed when I did eat the apple and peanut butter.It looks like that did it's job ,no massive spike in blood sugar since I went to sleep.So my liver isn't dumping glucose into my bloodstream.That's good isn't it.I don't feel so good still but that is probably due to the interrupted night's sleep I am having.

277 is much better than the 400+ that you were running. You probably don't feel good due to your sleep. Your sugar may go down even more. When you get up take your meds and eat a pure protein 0 carb breakfast and your sugar may get under 200. Good luck and keep us posted.

8am,Good morning all.I don't know what happened I went to bed at 4am again and woke and it has shot up,my blood sugar to 378,maybe my liver did do a glucose dump into the bloodstream after all.I wasn't able to eat much so I had an orange and took my medications.I will measure in a couple of hours.I plan to have boiled eggs for lunch.

Keep up the good work. Hopefully your visit to the nurse will give you some help. Stress can make blood sugar levels go up. And the sugar cravings are not going to give up easily but you are on the right track.

Its come down to 156,I just had boiled eggs and a slice brown bread and butter for lunch.So far it is going well.I am being really careful what I eat and how much I eat.Hopefully I can get it down and keep it down by changing my diet.I don't want the new medications,apparently they make you use the toilet more often and I have problems with leaks already!I hope to keep the readings around the 156 mark,or even lower!
